Beginning in my home in the center of Canada, I head nearly directly south for 3,015 kilometers to a city in the center of Mexico. What city have I arrived at that begins with Z and shares it name with the state it is the capital of?
I continue my journey south through Central America and into South America. Before too long I come to an extinct volcano called Cerro Zapaleri. Its peak marks the tripoint of the borders of three different countries. Which of these is not one of the countries that meet at Zapaleri?
Even further south, things start to get very cold as I encounter the frozen Antarctic continent. A few inquiries leads me to discover that there are three mountain peaks that begin with the letter 'Z'. Which of these is NOT one of them?
Turning back north (is there any other way to go from Antarctica?), I hop across the Southern Ocean and head for the modern-day country that contains what used to be the Zulu Kingdom. In what country do I find myself?
Travelling north, I come to another geographical feature at the conjunction of multiple countries; this time it's a river. What river, the fourth longest in Africa, travels through the junction of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana?
Leaving Africa, I continue north into Europe, until I reach a city in a mountainous country known for chocolate, clocks, and neutrality. Which city, the largest in the country and famous for its banks, have I arrived at?
Once I hit the North Sea I turn right and head east into Russia. With a long list of 'Z' cities to visit, I decide to choose one close to Moscow. Which of these cities is only 20 kilometers east of Moscow?
Continuing in my generally eastward direction, I veer south to China, ending up in the capital city of the Henan province, close to the famed Shaolin Temple built in the year 495. Recognized as one of the 'Eight Great Ancient Capitals of China', where have I arrived?
I leave mainland Asia and head south over the water and myriad islands until I come to Zamboanga City, located on the island of Mindanao on the Zamboanga Peninsula. To which country have I come?
